The Price Of PagerDuty Rises On An Upgraded Full-Year Forecast

Published on

Following a positive outlook for the following three months, PagerDuty (NYSE:PD) surpasses Wall Street’s expectations.

PagerDuty’s (NYSE:PD) 

In response to the company’s upgraded full-year forecast and better-than-expected second-quarter results revealed late Thursday, PagerDuty’s (NYSE:PD) shares increased by almost 8% pre-market on Friday.

In contrast to its previous estimate of $364 to $369 million, the application software company now anticipates sales in the range of $365-$370 million (consensus: $367.98 million). According to consensus, the adjusted loss per share will be between -$0.10 and -$0.12 compared to the previous forecast of -$0.17 to -$0.21 loss/share.

In Q2, the company outperformed Wall Street expectations, posting an adjusted loss per share of -$0.04 on revenue of $90.25M (+33.6% Y/Y).

Billings of $92 million (+23% Y/Y) fell short of the 25%–30% range mentioned during the call for the previous quarter, nevertheless. The company blamed this decline on extended sale cycles that lowered its initial bookings forecasts. Additionally, Europe saw a little bit more softening than other regions.

PagerDuty (PD) anticipates its trailing 12-month billings increase to be at or above 20% from the third quarter of last year.

Earnings conference for the second quarter

After the incident management software supplier reported better-than-expected earnings, the share price increased on Thursday, reversing the sharp decline that occurred during the normal session.

PagerDuty reported revenue of $90.3 million for its fiscal second quarter that concluded on July 31, up 33.6% from the same period last year. This is higher than both the company’s projected range of $87 million to $89 million and the consensus estimate of $88 million made by Wall Street analysts.

In the market for application observability, PagerDuty is a market leader. It offers a platform for cloud monitoring that businesses use to alert their engineers and developers to problems with their apps and the infrastructure that supports them. Additionally, PagerDuty offers tools to help users swiftly troubleshoot any issues that arise, enabling clients to prevent excessive application downtime.

PagerDuty Chairperson and CEO Jennifer Tejada (pictured) stated that high demand across all regions and verticals was what drove the company’s success. She claimed that’s because customers looking to increase productivity and efficiency get an “immediate and high” return on investment from using its software.
